The most fierce battle for the rule is currently in West Bengal with Modi and Mamata locking horns against each other. Over the weeks, both parties have been trying to paint a good picture of themselves among the people while attacking each other where ever they can.

Also, BJP is campaigning aggressively to retain power in Assam, where it won against Congress in 2016. Congress, meanwhile, might have a tough time in the coming elections despite inciting the people against BJP over Farm Laws and other issues. Recently, after multiple resignations, the Congress government fell in Puducherry just like it did in other states like Madhya Pradesh and Karnataka.

In Kerala, it’s an intense battle for the ruling Left-Led front and the Congress-led opposition coalition. However, if you take into consideration CPM’s recent performance in the local body elections, the party is more likely to keep the power for another term.
